Advice on a simple SQL script scheduling package for OS X


I have a few script that need to run at certain times on our MySQL database. We have it running on our OS X Servers. Just wondering if there is a simple package just to schedule scripts I have written for OS X?

I currently run scripts using VMWare running XP and using Navicat but to be honest it's a bit like cracking a nut with a hammer. I have searched on Google for applications but come up empty handed.

Any advice would be much appreciated.
